Philips Signage Solutions now offers HDBaseT compatibility

Fremont, CA, December 1, 2014 –Philips Signage Solutions, operated by Envision Peripherals Inc. (EPI), today announced the HDBaseT receiver in Intel’s Open Pluggable Specification (OPS) form factor module, CDR25. Philips’ CDR25 HDBaseT OPS module is designed to be seamlessly integrated with Philips OPS ready commercial EL and VL series displays as well as zero bezel XL and XH series displays.
With CDR25 plugged in, Philips commercial digital signage displays act as an all-in-one display that is able to playback the content from a remote media player up to 100 m (328 ft) away over industry standard category 5e or category 6 cables. Any uncompressed ultra-high-definition video (up to 4K), audio, and power over HDBaseT (PoH – up to 100W) will be transmitted to Philips commercial digital signage displays from the remote media player.

Sr. Product Marketing Manager of Envision Peripherals Inc., Philips Signage global licensee and North America business operation company, Glen Young said, “CDR25 is the key component that simplifies the deployment of the cabling configuration on applications that have physical location limitation on applications such as display array, QSR or Fast Casual digital menu boards, and digital signage video walls. It also tremendously benefits the cost of ownership and space saving to the business owners.”
Philips’ CDR25 HDBaseT OPS module is certified by HDBaseT Alliance and is fully compatible with all HDBaseT certified transmitters in the market today. The module is available for customers in November 2014.

CDR25 HDBaseT OPS module supports Philips Signage displays commercial 42”, 46”, 55”, 65” of 60 EL series, high brightness 42”, 46” of 71VL and 80VL series, and all Video Wall XL and XH series to empower simple digital connectivity between HD video sources and remote displays.
